Mission Statement

Our research targets the novel designs of small computing systems that are equipped with basic processing and sensing modules, thus enabling them to detect, monitor, and learn phenomena around them. We are particularly interested in obtaining multiple simple and/or challenging sensor signals within low-power devices, rather than bulky solutions that tend to be expensive, complex, and fragile. The focus lies especially in the algorithms and software models that we build on these small embedded systems to process and characterize the sensors' output, though we also build our custom sensor hardware.
We aim to evaluate our systems in real-world trials, rather than to stop at prototypes in simulation or lab tests. For this, we collaborate with other researchers (for instance psychiatrists, sleep researchers, or sports coaches).
